Few things make a trip to the grocery store more interesting than coming across funny soda can displays. You know, the giant pieces of advertising designed to look like Mario, or your local football team's logo – but made out of boxes of soda. Cool soda display art has been popping up more and more, but they’ve been around since at least the '70s – when marketers decided to start having fun with their jobs. Soda displays and pop can set ups are interesting looks into the minds of whomever designed them, depending on what characters or types of designs they use, you can tell what movie they were watching, or what game they were playing that day. It would be easy to be cynical about grocery store soda displays, but they’re so cool to look at that even the most jaded of shoppers can appreciate their pixelated beauty.

For whatever reason, classic Nintendo games tend to pop up a lot in grocery store soda can displays. More than likely, these designs are the most easily identifiable games in history, but there’s also a good chance that the people who make these designs are total nerds that want to spread some dorky cheer to everyone that has to spend an hour or so pushing a cart around their local grocery store. The cool soda displays on this list range from 8-bit characters to holiday figure heads, and more.
